Below, you will find an introduction to a new online grammar game titled Grammatikus. As well as testing your English skills, it will entertain you with a fantastic story and challenge you to improve your knowledge.
If you are interested in playing, send me an email with your full name and home group in the subject line.
I will reply with your username and password
The game includes instructions, followed by a short test.
You can navigate your way through different levels and ‘spend’ the money (points) you earn to upgrade your avatar.
The student who progressed the most over the next month will be rewarded with a prize!
Enjoy the journey!
